You may not know about this hidden gem in Las Vegas - the Pinball Hall of Fame - but it will be far more visible after it opens a new location at 4915 S. Las Vegas Blvd., near the Harley-Davidson dealership on the south end of the Strip. In a recent Facebook post, the Pinball Hall of Fame outlined their plan to move to the new location (after its built) from their current location on Tropicana.
The Pinball Hall of Fame, hosted by the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club with a collection by Las Vegas local Tim Arnold, opened its currently location on Tropicana near Spencer in 2009. It houses numerous vintage pinball and arcade games for locals and tourists to enjoy. Parking and admission is free and money raised through these games is donated to local charities around town.
In order to help the move to their new location run smoothly, they are offering memberships for the Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club. Levels of membership include:
- $50 - includes a shirt and a small listing on the Pinball Hall of Fame's Wall of Fame
- $100 - includes a shirt, 5 disc set of PinGame Journal Promos and Clips, and a larger listing on the Wall of Fame
- $500 (and up) - a Gold, Platinum, or Super Krell Metal membership
Members will also receive special perks at the new location's grand opening. Directions on how to join are detailed in the Facebook post linked below.
The Pinball Hall of Fame is a 501c3 and all donations are tax deductible.
